I'm a day late, so what..........

For me it has to be 12/19/94.

I'll admit, part of the allure is that this was my last show. It was also the only show my wife ever went to with me.

As Jerry started singing you could hear the the years of accumulated pain and emotion in his voice. And he poured every minute of what he had been through into the song that night. Call me crazy, but it listening to the stream, it seems as if everyone else was playing very subdued knowing that Jer couldn't quite get the vocals there without their help.

I will never forget what my wife told me that night as the song ended.....

She turned and whispered to me, "My God, he's dying on stage, and he knows it."

Indeed, "the days grow dark and mean."
